      You would think that the resort would try to move the unwanted guests during a wedding. I am so sorry that you were disappointed. The gazebo in pics does not look bad. But pics can hide certain defects. You do look beautiful in the pic and yours dress is really pretty.

        We just got back yesterday from a wedding at ROR - my girlfriend chose the beach location, but did the tropical arch. I agree that the gazebo looks quite banged up ... that would have bothered me also!
        However - you can be grateful that you only had the 'edge dwellers' during your ceremony - at the wedding we were at, there were also a couple shabby looking sea-doos parked right behind where the ceremony was as well ... maybe the ROR just needs to work on the beach locale in general!!!

        As an aside ...you look gorgeous ... and the gazebo comes out lovely in the pictures!

        I'm off to read your review now!

          We didn't have locals in our photos but we did have maintenance men setting up the arch in our pictures, actual Riu employees. Talk about disappointment!

                    Honestly, it's not something to worry too much over. You're going to have curious on-lookers at any destination wedding in any location at every resort. They're just jealous cause you're having an amazing wedding and they had to have a stuffy church thing back home with their second cousins, twice removed AND they had to invite their bosses! The beach gazebo was pretty amazing in my opinion. It's a much nicer backdrop than a crepe paper covered ivy trellis! (no offense to those who like the crepe paper covered ivy trellises!

                    And for the record, the beach is not closed off on the wedding gazebo end. You're free to walk off the property but there are security guards keeping other people out.
